  • Hardy digs in as Tigers complete sweep of Sox
    Fueled by starter Blaine Hardy's 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball and Nicholas Castellanos' two-run home run, the Tigers completed their three-game series sweep of the White Sox with a win on Sunday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field. Their fifth consecutive win moved them to within a game of .500 for the first time since April 25, and kept them within 2 1/2 games of Cleveland in the American League Central. Matt Davidson homered to account for Chicago's lone run.

  • Avila cheers start, won't alter long-term plans
    The Tigers' relative success this season has been a pleasant surprise for many, but it will not change the team's plans, either this season or long term. If anything, general manager Al Avila sees it as a sign that they're headed in the right direction.

  • Scrappy Tigers use late rally to win 4th straight
    The Tigers rallied again late to extend their winning streak to four games. Jose Iglesias' RBI infield single off former teammate Bruce Rondon keyed a two-run eighth inning, sending Detroit to victory over the White Sox on Saturday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field. Nicholas Castellanos had two home runs and five RBIs in the win, and starter Jordan Zimmermann began the game with four perfect frames. Charlie Tilson led Chicago with a 2-run single.
  • Iglesias: Becoming U.S. citizen is 'huge for me'
    After studying for his citizenship test with teammates and clubhouse video coordinator Andy Bjornstad, Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias took his test Friday morning in Detroit. Iglesias passed the test, then traveled to Chicago, where he joined the team in time for the game. His formal ceremony, perhaps fittingly, will be on the field at Comerica Park next homestand.
  • Hicks helps to keep Tigers rolling vs. White Sox
    Mike Fiers didn't get a win for his 33rd birthday, but the Tigers picked up their third consecutive victory with another late rally. John Hicks singled and scored on an infield grounder in the eighth inning to lift Detroit to a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. Hicks also hit a solo homer in the second inning, his sixth of the season. Omar Narvaez hit a three-run homer in the sixth to represent Chicago's lone runs.
  • Tigers likely to replace Miggy internally
    John Hicks was one of the Tigers' most productive hitters in May while filling in for an injured Miguel Cabrera. With Cabrera now out for the rest of the year, they'll need about a half-season of that from their backup catcher turned primary first baseman.
  • Jones' go-ahead 2-run homer lifts Tigers
    Michael Fulmer earned his first win at Comerica Park since last July 15 the hard way, dueling Lance Lynn for seven innings before JaCoby Jones' slump-busting two-run homer in the seventh put the Tigers on top for a win over the Twins on Thursday afternoon. Lynn held Detroit scoreless until Niko Goodrum hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh to tie the game at 1. Jones went deep for his fifth homer as Fulmer moved to 3-5.
  • Tigers' 4-run 8th gives Gardy milestone victory
    The Tigers don't have Miguel Cabrera in their lineup, but they still have the Rally Goose in their dugout. Victor Reyes' go-ahead RBI single fueled a four-run eighth inning, sending Detroit to a 5-2 comeback victory over the Twins on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. John Hicks and Niko Goodrum each had three hits for Detroit, and Eduardo Escobar's two-run single in the first accounted for the Twins' lone offense.
  • Bullpen can't pick up strong Hardy in loss
    The Tigers probably wouldn't care to remember what their Tuesday night looked like. There was Miguel Cabrera leaving early with an injury. The offense struggling for runs without some help. The bullpen giving up a two-out grand slam in the seventh. Taken together, all three of these factors cost the Tigers in a 6-4 loss to the Twins to open this three-game series at Comerica Park.

  • Goodrum visits Flint to distribute donated water
    The line of cars pulling into Bethel United Methodist Church stretched around the block and then some, winding around the nearby four-lane road and down a neighborhood street. It's the type of commotion that might have accompanied a Tigers superstar on the Winter Caravan during their playoff years. But utility infielder Niko Goodrum isn't a star name, and he wasn't doing an autograph signing. He was delivering bottled water.
